  • Lose to the Eventual Champs

    We're the only team who could lose to the eventual champs 2 years in a row. I wonder how often that has happened, if ever?

    I thought Eggzavier did it 2-3x in a row

    It was in the Pete Gillen years I believe.

    I think I'd like OSU to lose tho.

      I really hope UC did not lose to the eventual champs this year. You never like losing, but you can take some small solace from the fact that you lost to the national champion. I just don't want that to be tO$U, that's all.

        Not sure about this, but I think we may be the only team to lose in overtime to the eventual national champion three times.

        1963 to Loyola
        1966 to Texas Western (Now UTEP)
        1993 to North Carolina

        If only.............

          Still would prefer OSU winning it all than UK. Don't think I could handle that

            I can stand it a little more this yr with the S-16, still enjoy reading about the Cats more than watching a full E-8 or FF game. I can watch parts, usually not the whole game.

              If only Huggs would have called TO when NC went on that late run to catch up. He was saving it, I can understand his reasoning, but... Sooooooooooo close to 2 FF's in a row. Wow imagine recruiting. Still think about that game sometimes. Sounds like Longtimer thinks about 3 of them. Some u just don't forget. Loyola was in the the NC game, what about Tex We? Was that in the Final 8?? Back then the tourney was how many teams??

                22 teams. UC had a bye and lost it's first game in the "sweet" 16. Then lost the regional 3rd place game to SMU.

                UCLA didn't make the tourney but started a long run the next year beating Dayton to win the championship.

                    I'm pretty sure that 22 teams made the tourney that year. The top ten got byes into the sweet sixteen, and there were six playin games to get to sixteen. The Texas Western game was our first game of the tourny. The Midwest regional was in Lubbock, TX that year, and TW had a huge homecourt advantage. Hard to believe now, but there was no TV for that game, I Iistened on the radio. Also, our final regular season game against Wichata State was one of the great games ever in the Armory Fieldhouse, winner was MVC champ, celebration after......

                        Please God no.

                        Ohio State fans are insufferable DBs on good days. The minute any of their programs do anything interesting it gets 100 times worse.

                        You can give it a patriotic name, but it still sucks.

                          Have you ever tried to talk to a UK fan?

                          I would really enjoy UofL() vs Kansas in the final game though.

                            I think it may have happened in 61 and 62...

                              What about Butler the last couple of years?
                              In loving memory, I will be a fan for both of us.
